  • Who is the official Event Charity?  Kids Run RVA is the official Event Charity of the Tacky Light Run.  It is Sports Backers’ youth –focused initiative dedicated to motivating thousands of young people across the Richmond region to run, jog, and walk on a regular basis. The program has over 75 clubs (and growing!) in the Richmond region spanning from Hanover to Hopewell and points in between, and it places emphasis on young runners in under-served communities, where opportunities for physical activity are often limited.  Kids Run RVA is working to offset the epidemic of childhood obesity and is cultivating a long-standing love of running and physical activity that will translate into adulthood for all kids in our community.  Every year, Kids Run RVA helps thousands of kids get moving, providing support in a variety of ways, including helping schools establish running clubs, providing proper running shoes to kids in need (last fall we donated 85 pairs of shoes), and making it possible for them to participate in youth races.
    • You can donate here or during registration.
